This book has the following objectives: • Develop and update general science, technology, and information knowledge to provide advanced remote sensing studies of ocean environment • Provide insight into the research and specification of hydrodynamic and electromagnetic effects, contributions, and signatures potentially observable by passive microwave radiometric sensors • Investigate and demonstrate the capabilities and advantages of highresolution multiband passive radiometry and imagery for the detection of ocean variables and dynamic features The material presented in this book is the radiometric part of a multisensor synergy observation concept.
This concept includes a combined simultaneous use of active/passive microwave and optical techniques for advanced remote sensing of the ocean. It is created on the basis of our multiyear experiences, an experimental effort, and analysis of existing data, materials, publications, reports, and documents available from various literature sources. As a result of the past and recent studies in which the author was involved continuously (1975–2015), a scientifically applied topic named Radio-Hydro-Physics (this terminology was used in the early 1980s by Professor V.
The creation of such a combined algorithm is a complicated scientific task, especially in the case of high-resolution microwave measurements. Today, only one remote sensing method remains for the quantitative direct observation of ocean surface features: fine-resolution (few meters and better) airspace optical imagery. Unlike radar or radiometer data, the high visual image quality of satellite optical systems provides detailed information about surface wave processes and their spatial characteristics.
